This action will have consequences: LIFE IS STRANGE

I am enjoying this after a slow start and cannot wait to see where the story goes. I haven't read a CYOA story in ages, but even though the mechanics are the same, this doesn't FEEL like a CYOA story. Maybe because of all the swears.

And a protip, on PS4 anyway: if you bought the complete season, the individual episodes are still separate downloads, so you might want to have the next episode queued in you DL list while you're playing.

The arc between eps 3-4 is incredible and intense. Wowsers.

I finished this last night, and I don't know what went wrong but I felt absolutely nothing, like someone pulled the stopper on all the emotions that were built up.

oh were you talking about 1 upthread??

Yes, I was playing 1 when I made this thread. I'm really unsure if I'll try 2, maybe I'll reassess after I try another run through 1 with some hopefully better decisions.

The music in LIS2 is TERRIBLE. Really almost a deal-killer terrible.

Right - I made it to the end of
chapter 2 and... I think they forgot to include a game, in this game?

I don't know what happened - I loved the first series so much. Maybe I enjoyed playing as someone who could control time more than as someone who... has a brother with telekinesis? There was a game mechanic in the first series - like Groundhog Day, Edge of Tomorrow, Braid, etc etc - that let you discover whole new wrinkles to what seemed like simple situations. This series just... does away with all that and replaces it with... emoting indie music? Like.. great world-building dudes but where is the game??

Also who takes their dishes back to the kitchen by putting their glass ON TOP of their dirty plate??? They do this TWICE. I got both so nervous that the glass was going to fall off the plate and so squicked out by the glass rolling around in the old food that I was totally on the verge of yelling at the TV but then that sweet, sweet indie music lulled my savage breast back to a place of childlike wonder

i'm still steamed about this

i think i did the laundry twice, in two different houses, to no discernible effect

apparently there's something quite dramatic that can happen at the end of E2 but apparently i made the "right" choices and the dramatic/bad thing didn't happen so this was like LIS2: Low Stakes Revenge

Just curious: does LIS2 take into account the choices you make in LIS1?

I doubt it, it's a totally new story with difft characters
